Logic and Automata: History and Perspectives
by Jorg Flum (ed)
Publisher: Amsterdam University Press 2007
Number of pages: 737
Mathematical logic and automata theory are two scientific disciplines with a fundamentally close relationship. This volume covers many different facets of logic and automata theory, emphasizing the connections to other disciplines such as games, algorithms, and semigroup theory, as well as discussing current challenges in the field.
